London, UK, (April 23rd 2014) — Graduway, the leading provider of branded alumni networking platforms, today announced that the company has joined the Blackbaud Partner Network, a group of leading technology and services firms providing nonprofits with the solutions, applications and strategies they need to make a difference in their local communities and worldwide.

As a Blackbaud Technology Partner, Graduway joins a network of companies that provide applications and solutions that extend Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB) product functionality in new ways.

“This partnership will help our clients combine the strength of Graduway’s alumni engagement platform with their existing Blackbaud products,” said Chris Clinton, Blackbaud’s Vice President, global channels and partner ecosystem.

The partnership allows Graduway’s alumni networking platforms to leverage select Blackbaud marketing and fundraising products by enabling clients to find lost donors and better engage them. Graduway’s platform quickly provides a source of real time donor contact and activity information that flows seamlessly into Blackbaud products like The Raiser’s Edge®. It also improves alumni engagement, enhancing the campaigns of clients using marketing and fundraising products like Blackbaud NetCommunity™.

“We understood early on that it was critical that Graduway’s alumni networking platforms lived within our clients’ ecosystem – and that meant partnering with Blackbaud,” said Daniel Cohen, CEO of Graduway, ‘’Existing Blackbaud clients using Graduway will quickly find their lost alumni and see their databses being populated with up to date donor information, and significant improvements to both donations and engagement.”
